FilMart: Thailand’s M Pictures Scares up Business With ‘Take Me Home’

Thailand’s M Pictures has unveiled local horror movie “Take Me Home,” and made speedy connections with Asian regional distributors at Hong Kong’s FilMart.

The story features a man who struggles to find his own identity after an accident and, after returning home to his twin sister, he learns to fear her secrets and those of her family.

The package is directed by one of Thailand’s most acclaimed filmmakers, Kongkiat Khomsiri (“Art of the Devil 2,” “Art of the Devil 3,” “Gangster,” “Slice”) and has Thai superstar Mario Maurer (“Pee Mak,” “A Little Thing Called Love”) in the lead. The female lead is Wannarot Sonthichai (“Jan Dara”).

The film is part of an initiative by M Pictures, better known as the distribution affiliate of the Major Cineplex theaters chain, to ramp up its movie production efforts. It will be released in theaters in Thailand and Laos on April 13 and in Cambodia beginning in May.

At FilMart the company is close to sales deals with distributors in Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Singapore.
